About this book

This comprehensive, up-to-date book is designed to make recent developments in neuroimmunology accessible to medical professionals in the field. The field of neuroimmunology is complex and rapidly evolving, especially with the current improvements in targeted biologic therapies. This resource concisely offers clear explanations of these scientific and clinical advancements.

Divided into five parts, the book begins with an in-depth introduction to neuroimmunology and the principles of immunotherapy. Section two consists of eight chapters devoted to multiple sclerosis, including discussions on the clinical features of the disease as well as symptom management and diagnosis. Subsequent chapters then dive into other central nervous system inflammatory disorders such as neuromyelitis optica, autoimmune encephalopathies, and immunological aspects of cancer. Following this are two chapters that examine distinct aspects of autoimmune disorders of the peripheral nervous system. Finally, the book closes with a review on the neurologic manifestations, diagnostic approaches and treatments of the various systemic rheumatic diseases.

Following its successful predecessor edition, Clinical Neuroimmunology: Multiple Sclerosis and Related Disorders, Second Edition is positioned to be an invaluable asset to neurologists, residents and fellows, internists, and general practitioners who treat patients with neurologic disorders and other systemic autoimmune diseases.
